COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Until spring 2009 brewed by Huyghe for Jopen. Until 2006 brewed by Van Steenberge. Brewed with three grains: barley, oats and wheat, as requested in mediaeval Haarlem, fresh-bitterish hops and spicey coriander. Jopen Lentebier is unfiltered and gets a secondary fermentation in the bottle. A darker blonde beer with a fruity aroma and a fresh, fullbodied taste.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Another of the classic Jopen beers, tasted in Van Steenberge’s version. Snow white, delicate, unstable head, warm orange blonde colour approaching amber, clear. Aroma of honeyish and caramelly malts, fresh orange, coriander, aniseed, apricot, young cheese and grass. Smooth caramel taste, delicately sugary, as from vanilla sugar, not sticky in any way, peachy, some light coriander and refreshing ’citrusness’, fresh grassy hops in the finish but ending a bit phenolic too. Other than that, this transcends the ’lentebok’ beers from the larger Dutch breweries.

On tap. Hazy yellow/orange. Aroma of citrus and lemongrass. Spicy fruity citrus taste. Didn’t get much coriander. Refreshing - closer to wheat beer than Belgian ale ?

markschiedon (196) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Drinking from tab at Meibockfestival Amsterdam. No special aroma, not bad, but nothing really comes up. The unclear orange beer has a small white head. The taste is hoppy and is therefore nicely bitter. Medium carbonation.
